PORTLAND, Oregon (AP) ' Former Sen. Mark Hatfield, an outspoken critic of war whose liberal views often put him at odds with fellow Republicans, has died. He was 89.

Jerry Frank, a friend and former aide, says Hatfield, who had become increasingly frail in recent years, died Sunday evening in Portland.

Also a former Oregon governor, Hatfield was the longest serving U.S. senator in Oregon history, serving five terms from 1967 to 1997. He gained fame for key efforts against American involvement in Vietnam and the Persian Gulf war.
